The most beautiful day in Antarctica is how I'll remember this day. The most perfect weather conditions one could ask for - warm, embracing blue skies, and calm, clear, reflective waters. A day like this is one to remember. A perfect validation of why you you traveled to the ends of the Earth without truly knowing what was in store for you.
Took this photo from a zodiac while getting a tour of the area. This would be the site for making landfall on the continent proper. Most of the landings in Antarctica are on islands along the Antarctic Peninsula. Those landings are no less spectacular than any others, but there is a great deal of personal gratification to be had when setting foot on the actual continent.
